Urban Forests of Orofino Legacy Tree Program

Urban Forests of Orofino (UFO) has implemented the Legacy Tree Program. The first legacy tree in the city’s new program was planted earlier this month at Lewis Clark Park in honor of Leola Stoneback.  Members of the Urban Forests of Orofino Committee for the City of Orofino were on hand to plant a tree in memory of her.  A granite monument was also placed at the base of the tree in her honor.

Planting a legacy tree is a remembrance of the past and, at the same time, a renewing of life. It is also a way to pay tribute to a loved one or friend – a gift that can last a lifetime. A legacy tree can be planted for other occasions such as celebrating a birthday, a graduation, a wedding, or retirement.

If you are interested in the program and would like more information about the Legacy Tree Program contact the city’s Arborist – Todd Perry at: 476-4725 or stop by Orofino City Hall at 217 1st Street, to pick up a brochure.
